Fatal Stabbing Prompts Homicide Investigation At Grisly Crime Scene In South LA; Assailant At Large
SOUTH HOLLYWOOD (KABC) — On Tuesday night in an unincorporated part of South Los Angeles, a man, 45 years old, was found brutally murdered. Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department have begun their investigation.
Officials say a stabbing incident occurred in the 13500 block of Maie Avenue, and that police later found blood all over a parked car there. Crime scene investigators also discovered a puddle of blood on the pavement.
An investigation revealed that the victim had been in a physical altercation with a male suspect. A stabbing incident apparently occurred, and the victim was injured.
The victim of the stabbing allegedly ran to a neighbor’s house where he or she begged for help. Those kind souls in the neighborhood dialed emergency services, and he was taken to the nearest hospital.
Later, the man passed away at the hospital. Even though the murder weapon has not been found, deputies have not released a description of the suspect. According to the Sheriff’s Office, they believe that the murder was gang-related.
On Sunday, police in unincorporated Los Angeles were looking into a fatal stabbing. An hour and fifteen minutes after midnight, on the 4300 block of Union Pacific Avenue, a person tragically lost their life. When authorities received word of a fatal stabbing, they rushed to the scene.
When they got there, they found the victim, who had been stabbed in the upper part of his body. Despite receiving aid at the scene and being transported to the hospital, he was ultimately pronounced dead upon arrival. There was a report that the victim was a Hispanic man in his thirties.
